We all arrived at the San Jose airport yesterday morning by 4:30am to catch our 6:20am flight to Belize. The trip was pretty uneventful, which is a good thing! Everyone was in good spirits and looking forward to the trip ahead.
As scheduled, we arrived in Belize at close to 4pm (two hour time difference from California) and were met by a large group from the Belize City Chinese church. They took us to our guesthouse and then we had a time of dinner and fellowship together. It was good to see old friends, especially Victor and Jerry who came to LGCC last summer for our exchange program.
So far, our Sunday is planned. We’ll lead the Sunday service here at BCCCC and then have lunch together with the brothers and sisters here. We also hope to begin doing some interviews with the church members, so we can practice interviewing and they can see exactly what we’re doing, too.
Eddie and Pastor Brian have meetings scheduled on Monday morning with the Minister of Forestry for Belize as well as the head of the Office of Climate Change for the entire Caribbean.
-Pray for the team that we’ll get settled in quickly here in Belize and that many Chinese people will desire to be interviewed for this project.
-Pray for Pastor Brian because he came to Belize sick with some kind of sinus cold. Pray for healing and energy, especially with Monday’s meetings coming up.
-Pray for these initial government meetings on Monday, that what we present in terms of aiding the country will begin good discussions about potential partnership in the future.
